Today’s card is pretty much as easy as it can get. The Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper is almost always a starting point for me in creating a card. I worry that it may be too often! But the beauty of the paper cannot be denied. Today I have made a #simplestamping card using the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper.
This piece of the DSP has this pattern along the top and the bottom of a 12 X 12 sheet. The middle section is the gorgeous light blue background. I cut the sheet 5 1/8 X 3 7/8 and made four cards exactly like this one. I pulled the card base and layer colors from the paper. The card base is Gorgeous Grape with a layer of Purple Posy added in.
The only stamping on this card is the sentiment. It is from the Oval Occasions stamp set. The stamp set is retiring but , thankfully, the Double Oval Punch is carrying over. I stamped the sentiment using Gorgeous Grape Ink. I debated on adding a few embellishments but this is a #simplestamping card. So I stayed true to the Stamps, Ink, and Paper theme. Simple cards can , and are, very pretty and I believe this card shows that very well.
The measurements for this layout are also quite simple. The base card is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, the layer is 5 1/4 X 4, and the DSP is 5 1/8 X 3 7/8. I have the supplies at the bottom of the post. I believe this is the smallest supply list I have posted! LOL!!
